I have recently heard a few horror stories about people who have paid property transfer taxes on a place, only to be hit with astronomical tax demands a few months/years down the line. The reason for this being that the property market has pretty much collapsed since the original valuations (valor catastral) were made.

I personally know of a couple of people this has happened to, but not regarding huge amounts of money (1-2,000 euros), but I've read about people losing much more. 

I'm currently to buy a place in Sevilla which had its valor catastral made in 2001, which was then valued at around E30,000 more than the current asking price! So I suspect that I might have some problems later down the line if I do go through with the purchase. Has anyone bought something in Sevilla over the last year or two who can share their experiences?

I believe the values are assessed by using a multiplier and the square metres.   That multiplier varies according to the  town, the part of the town  and the ‘quality' of the property.   A notary can access the web page and see the value the tax office will use, but I am not sure if they will tell you if you ask.  A gestor, abogado etc.  should be able to do so too.

Legal Questions? Speak to Maria Direct

Exactly, the tax value of the property is made up of multiplying the cadastral value by a local public index
